Summer Time is a project of an acclaimed Russian jazz pianist and composer Natalia Skvortsova. With this album, Natalia and her band attempted to create a music, inspired by very specific images and appearances, described in the track titles: a rose, a train, a sleeping boy, etc. Obviously, the musical form of their choice is jazz. So the resulting album is a very nice piece of melodic, soft and groovy contemporary jazz – a perfect soundtrack for your summer laid-back listening session.

Summer Time by Summer Time
This is one of those good carefree sounding albums that you can play on one of those nice warm sunny evenings as you relax in your back yard or a nice grassy park and either enjoy a snack or maybe a simple drink like iced tea along with a group of some of your friends. When making this album Summer Time preformed and recorded all of this Jazz music acoustically. Its my opinion that the people who can get into the idea of liking a record like this might be more open to a wider amount of music than say a person who only likes the top hits that are going strong at any particular given moment on contemporary radio stations. For its genre the Jazzy playing on Summer Time feels nice. I give the album four stars.

This Cd is purely lovely, some great music to sit back and enjoy, work to, or play at a party. Contemporary and swinging, with some teriffic instrument solos
